Binge and Flush? Netflix Says 13 Million Users Watch in Public Bathrooms

Binge and Flush? Netflix Says 13 Million Users Watch in Public Bathrooms

A study released Tuesday from Netflix revealed that 67% of people globally, or 2 out of every 3 persons worldwide, are willing to risk showing their emotions if it means being able to watch their favorite shows and movies outside of their home, Entertainment Weekly reports.

Indians love watching Netflix on the go, with over 88 percent of subscribers in the country having binge-watched their favourite series outside the comforts of their homes, according to a company-sponsored survey that polled 37,056 people across 22 countries.

The daily commute is a big time for Netflix with 34% of Aussies watching on the way to work, while the cafe also gets a run with 32% of people.

With 109 million-plus Netflix subscribers worldwide, that would mean almost 13 million people have made it a habit of binge-watching and flushing.

Then, when they've realised this, 21% of Aussie users have felt embarrassed because of what they've been caught watching and 34% have just gone back to their stream.

Australia's addiction with Netflix has seen us watching on buses, trains and planes, but new research has revealed some of us are streaming from public toilets.

"Netflixing In Public has become a social norm with 60% of Americans watching more movies and shows in public this year than last", said Eddy Wu, Director, Production Innovation Netflix, in a statement. One in two Indians claimed in the survey that a stranger started a conversation with them over the series/movie that they were watching.

Netflix said access to movies and TV shows ranks among the top five travel essentials for subscribers, along with Wi-Fi presence (48 percent), a comfortable seat (49 percent), a charger (41 percent) and food (37 percent).
